Candidate Statement:
I am not a politician. I am a married mother of two, entrepreneur, advocate for our children, and voice for tomorrow's education. I am running for the State Board of Education to serve you by upholding Texas values. It is my goal to strengthen our education system by backing our educators, fostering growth among our youth to better prepare them for a post-secondary world, and removing the indoctrination that's occurring within the walls of our schools.

I am a former educator with a Masters's in Educational Leadership from the University of North Texas. I am seeking to serve as a conservative voice for the communities of SBOE District 13. I have experience inside of the classroom, administration, and have written the secondary science curriculum. I believe that teachers deserve more respect and support than they receive. Teacher retention and turnover are at an all-time highs, and I hope to shift this negative trend in our state. Furthermore, as a mother of two in our public primary education system, my goal is to serve as a voice and advocate to protect our children from the indoctrination that is occurring within our schools.

The Republican Primary In Texas

On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the statute-specified period of early voting and absentee voting, the primary elections of the Republican Party will take place throughout Texas.

A primary election is an election in which registered voters in their county of residence will select candidates that they believe should represent the Republican Party for certain elected office to run in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

In the primary elections in Texas, registered voters will select candidates for certain Federal offices, State offices and County offices. The primary elections are also used to select party convention delegates and party leaders. Candidates for these offices have to meet the requirements of the office and file by the deadline in December 2021 in order to appear on the ballot.

The State of Texas employs an open primary system. In this system, voters do not have to register with a party in advance to participate in that party's primary. The voter must sign a pledge stating the following (the language below is taken directly from state statutes):

“The following pledge shall be placed on the primary election ballot above the listing of candidates' names: 'I am a Republican and understand that I am ineligible to vote or participate in another political party's primary election or convention during this voting year.”
